Healthy Beet Smoothie for less than a buck

Today I tried for the first time this delicious beet smoothie and I can't stop thinking about having another one. 

When I'm on the road I like to wake up with a healthy breakfast. What's better than a smoothie that i can make in less than 5 minutes. Many truckers complain that there is no way to keep a healthy diet while on the road. The 5000 calories pizzas in the truck stops are best bet when you have only 30 minutes off duty. 

A couple months ago, I decided to change the way I eat and now I start my morning with a smoothie that costs me less than $1. I lost 11 pounds in 3 weeks and I felt more energetic than ever.

Today I'm starting a healthy diet again, but this time I want to share it with all the truck drivers out there. If you want to eat healthier but you don't know how, follow this blog. I will post daily new easy to make recipes that I tried and loved.
